Health & Safety Manager
£40-50000 (DOE)+ Benefits
Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire
Are you an experienced Health and Safety professional?
Have you forged a successful career in a manufacturing or continuous process environment?
Would you like to take a key leadership role in a well-established company that is serious about improving their health and safety culture?
If so, you may be the person our client is looking for to take the reins of their health and safety operation across two sites in Milton Keynes and the East Midlands.
Our client operates a fast-moving, continuous process, converting operation which runs 24 hours a day, five days per week, on a three-shift system. As such, they are looking for someone with significant experience in managing the health and safety elements of that style of manufacturing operation. You’ll be based at their main site in Milton Keynes but will also need to spend some time at their sister site in the East Midlands.
It's our client’s mission to provide the safest workplaces possible, you’ll be an invaluable partner in helping each of their manufacturing sites reach their goals. You will challenge and inspire leadership teams to instil a world-class safety culture in every aspect, from behaviours to processes, with absolute determination for zero harm. Through your guidance, our client can ensure their standards meet industry certifications like 18001 & 45001.
And that’s the focus of this role. It’s about creating and promoting a behavioural health and safety culture across the organisation. And it will need your training, coaching and mentoring skills to influence this company-wide culture change.
Our client doesn’t view health and safety as a tick-box exercise. Instead, they want everyone in the company to understand their role in health and safety and elevate the topic to the front of everyone’s minds.
As such, you’ll be a well-educated, NEBOSH-qualified, chartered (or willing to work towards) IOSH Health and Safety professional. You’ll have had a continuous career in health and safety and have worked in a lean manufacturing environment. You’ll also have up-to-date knowledge of current UK legislation, including OSHAS 18001:2007.
Your personality and character will be essential to lead change and influence behaviours through coaching, training, and mentoring.
